Martin Westbeek is a marketing communications lecturer living in Holland. He has fished since age 12, but took a break in the seventies, got back into the swing in the eighties, wondering why he ever took that break in the first place, and determined to make up for lost time.

His home water is the typical Dutch lowland "polder" Wilnis, but what Martin likes best is fishing for trout in streams or lakes, in fresh and saltwater. Tying has become as much a passion for him as fishing, and Martin is a regular tyer at shows and fairs in Holland, Germany, Denmark and Britain, and also tied in the USA.

Loves: the best quality hackle, his LAW vise, tying technique

Pet peeves: good stuff going out of fashion, having to resort to reading glasses, gas and hook prices
